Jefferson College offers four degree pathways:

  • Associate of Arts (A.A.) – a general studies program designed to transfer to a four-year college or university.
  • Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.) – designed to transfer to a four-year teacher education program.
  • Associate of Science – Pre-Engineering (A.S.) – designed to transfer to an engineering institution, specifically the Missouri University of Science and Technology.
  • Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) – a series of career and technical education programs designed for those who wish to gain employment directly upon graduation. The A.A.S. degree is not designed to transfer. In most A.A.S. programs, students may pursue either a degree or a career and technical certificate.

Residents can also pursue a bachelor’s degree on campus through Jefferson College’s cooperative partnerships with Missouri Baptist University, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Central Methodist University.
